Gluten Free Almond Cream Cheese Bars

1 box Immaculate Baking Co.™ Gluten Free sugar cookie mix
1/2 cup butter, softened (Smart Balance)
1 tablespoon water
1 teaspoon gluten-free vanilla
1 egg
12 oz cream cheese, softened (Daiya Cream Cheese)
3/4 cup Immaculate Baking Co.™ cane sugar (I prefer raw sugar)
1 teaspoon almond extract
3 eggs
2 cups gluten-free powdered sugar
1/4 cup butter, softened (Smart Balance)
2 tablespoons milk (Non-Dairy)
1/4 teaspoon almond extract
1/4 cup sliced almonds, chopped (optional)
 25min prep time

  1. 1 
    Heat oven to 350°F. Spray bottom only of 13x9-inch pan.
  2. 2 
    In medium bowl, stir Crust ingredients until soft dough forms.
    Step 2
  3. 3 
    Press mixture evenly in bottom of pan. Bake 15 minutes.
    Step 3
  4. 4 
    Meanwhile, in large bowl, beat cream cheese and cane sugar with electric mixer on medium speed until smooth. Add 1 teaspoon almond extract and 3 eggs; beat 2 minutes, scraping side of bowl halfway through beating. Pour over partially baked crust.
    Step 4
  5. 5 
    Bake 20 to 25 minutes or until filling is set. Cool completely, about 1 hour
  6. 6 
    In small bowl, beat all Frosting ingredients except almonds with electric mixer on medium speed until smooth. Carefully spread over filling. Sprinkle with almonds. Refrigerate about 2 hours or until chilled. Store covered in refrigerator.
    Step 6
The secret for cutting bars easily is to line the pan with heavy-duty foil. When it is time to cut the bars, just lift the baked bars with the foil out of the pan, and cut.
Cheesecake bars cut best straight from the refrigerator. Use a wet sharp knife, wiping off crumbs after each cut.

Hough Bakery - butter cookies

Hough Bakery By Gail Greenberg&Diane Rolfe Hough Bakery was an integral part of me and my family's lives, (most people in Cleveland for that matter) I was heartbroken when they closed. I have always remembered the cookies and doughnuts from this magical bakery. Their products were like nothing I had ever had before (and it was extra magical because I was so little/young) I have been searching for about 30 years for something similar - no luck... but, thank goodness there are a few recipes floating around the internet! Unfortunately even with Archie's being open, my food afflictions will not allow me to enjoy those old time favorites. Luckily, converting is what I do and that's what this site is about so I will switch some things around and see how it turns out! The recipe below is just ONE of my all time favorites, please enjoy! Memories of a signature blue-and-white, string-tied cake box filled with a streusel coffee cake, hot cross buns, sticky pecan rolls, coconut cho…
